How long would it take a freighter or cargo ship to travel from New Orleans, Louisiana to Venice, Italy?
I am a fiction writer and my ususal research sources have failed me on this occasion. I’m just looking for a ballpark estimate from New Orleans to Venice with maybe one refueling stop if necessary.
It depends entirely on how fast the ship can travel. A ship that travels at 20 knots covers about 500 miles per day, and would make it from New Orleans to Venice in about 14 days. A ship moving at 10 knots would take twice the time. And so on.
Note that a realistic "refueling stop" would be the port of Algeciras, in southern Spain. That would be about 9 days out from New Orleans at 20 knots. When passenger liners traveled between the Med and NY they would stop at Algeciras before starting the trans-Atlantic "speed run".
Remember that it takes a ship 8 to 12 hours to travel from New Orleans to the mouth of the Mississippi. A "pilot" is required for that trip: http://www.crescentpilots.com/

The great French accordionist, Clifton Chenier, mixes rock and blues with his unique version of Zydeco music, a pulsating combination of Cajun French with African undertones. The film winds his music through the bayous and byways of the countryside.
